Published

on

21 Savage is all about giving back to his community whenever he is given the opportunity these days. His third annual back-to-school initiative comes in combination with the successful launch of his Leading By Example Foundation. The two-day event takes place next weekend on Aug. 4 and Aug. 5, not far from where 21 enjoyed childhood on Glenwood Road in Atlanta.

“Giving back to where I grew up means a lot to me. These kids need it and I use to be one of those kids,” the Atlanta native tells Billboard. “Being able to see someone from where u from make it and come back and genuine give back will motivate these kids to do the same for their kids and the community.”

Here is the video clip of last years 21 Savage Isssa Back to School Drive:

Just last week, the 25-year-old kicked off his Zone 6 Day initiative by donating $10,000 to ATL’s Continental Colony Elementary School at the LIFE Community Development Corporation event to help fund their Anti-Bullying Campaign. The contribution will also enhance efforts surrounding the school system’s childhood education, educational resources on anti-bullying and mental health, and school supplies.

Earlier in the year (March 13), was on Ellen discussing the launch his 21 Savage Bank Account Campaign, which partnered with non-profit organization Get Schooled and promised 21 teenagers $1,000 each in a scholarship fund to help them take on the challenge of financial literacy. The campaign encourages students to “get the knowledge to pay for college.”
